We hire photographers to capture those classic and timeless moments on our wedding day, but it is easy to forget why they do what they do in the first place. As I've gotten to know many of the very talented photographers we feature here on a daily basis, one thing is clear; these are artists with true creativity. This inspired shoot, by Brasspenny Photography, is an expression of that creative desire. The muted colors and minimalist details all occurred organically as they dug into and designed the elements of this shoot. Add to that this incredible Rue de Seine Bridal dress, and you have a gorgeous end product.

One of the aspects of their wedding that stood out to me most as the photographer was the reception entertainment. Amp’d Entertainment was fantastic as they created a fun environment where everyone just let go and danced. As a photographer, it is always fun to capture those real moments between the guest and the couple as they celebrate the wedding day. You can tell the couple truly enjoyed themselves - Tessie threw her hair up and danced the night away! I also loved that the couple had a private dinner during cocktail hour to share their first meal as husband and wife in a more intimate setting. From the couple to the venue, from the design to the dancing, this wedding will forever be a favorite!

When I reached out to Kathleen of JoPhoto about any content she would like to contribute to our first publication, our exchange was not as I had anticipated. Kathleen and her husband, photographers and filmmakers based in Knoxville, Tennessee, recently launched a second business that has proven quite successful in the photography industry. She unfortunately had no new content to submit for the magazine, nor did she have time to devote to a one-of-a-kind editorial made just for Book 1. In fact, they were preparing to leave on a trip to Ireland in the coming days. I asked Kathleen if she would share some personal photos with us when they got back, and she was kind enough to agree.

It started with the blue patterned china as an inspiration. A colonial-era inspired shoot was built from there, with timeless touches. The grounds at the historic Homestead Manor served as a perfect backdrop to blueberry, silver, and magnolia tones. The colonial details tell a story as if these film images could have been taken in the early days of our nation, yet still feel fresh & modern.
